The net indebtedness U now full $214,358,207 low than it was sixteen months ago, whHh shows an average monthly reduction of about $15,400,000.

The total reduc tion oi the cmreiiry tntrieft-bearmn debt wa $25,243,450. The aggregate of the coin-bearinir bond was increased $2:,422,150, by the issue ot consolidated Five-teut es ot 18G5. Of the ma tured debt $6,087,195, und of tne coin deposits $3,193,b20, were paio off. The gross Indebted ness was c .t do u $9,1)33.370. To the aggregate coin reserve in the Treasury $2,673,151 were added, una that portion of it absolutely owned by tbe Government was augmented $5,666,971. The curiencj reserve was diminished $6,100,066, or to an amount about equal to tho reduction of the ma "lied debt. Tne asereeate cash balance In the Treasury fell off $3,627,304. The out taudine Five-tecties of all issues now amount to $891,125 100, including $514, 780, 600 of the original cr 1862 insue, $100,000,000 of the tsstit oi 1864, $183, 181,750 of the tir,t 1865 issue (May and November), and $92,962,850 of the eeroud (or consolidated) 1865 issue (July and J an u an ). The Mix per cents, ot 1831 now amount to $283,740,850, against $283,740,000 a month ago. I'tu-ae, with the $171,060,350 of Ten-loitics, constitute the bulk of the coin-bearing portion of tbe debt.

From the Tribune If any one conceive that we are to meet with out exaction of some kind the demands of an Unprecedented national debt, this too while the business of tbe country Is-floated by an irre deemable paper currency, we have only to say that he is mistaken. So, if the complaints and Scruples of Mr. Commissioner Wells could be briefly solved, they would mainly amount .to this: That our debt Is large, and In some way ire are taxed heavily to pay it; but, on the other hand, it is because our currency Is inflated that onr taxes are so great burdens. Granted that certain rates of tariff and Internal taxation may be misapplied, the force of Mr. Wells' obections fs still against the currency. Three causes he give for our present cmbarrasements: First, the scarcity of labor; second, an irredeemable currency ; third, the burdan of natioual taxes. But, by the dritt ot his general argument, all tin &e causes appear to merge and unite in the fact that our currency is oad; because, in the first place, our debt is ureal, and in the second, because, however much our people have been taied duectly aud indirectly, and however va.it the amount of gold ttkeu' fro n commerce to feed the Trta-'ury. no pan of our revenue has yet been api.lied to redemption, Where, then, does the fault lie T Not essen tially. In the amojnt of our revenues, for, accotdincr to Commissioner Welln, they .yield us more than we want. For intance, Internal taxation in the last fiscal year netted us over $310,906,984, and by customs the receip.s were over $189,046,630 in gold, which in currency would make the total amount of revenne, by Tarious lorms of taxa'ion, $561,572,260. These are the Commissioner's own naures, and hence he alduces that we have enough and to spare. Judging merely from a revenue point of view, the country is prosperous as it never was before. But what are we doing with our accu mulating surplus? Granted ibat our people are, in some respects, sen-iblv burdeneJ with their taxes, would these burdens be half so much felt if tbe difference between currency aud gold were removed from their shoulders, or, in other words, if we right speedily em ployed oir surplus tor redemption f Mr. Wells' shrewd analysis ol the Influence of the currency on prices deserves attention, first, there is an increase in prices proportional to the difference between Rold and silver; second, the dealer's Insurance against fluctuation; third, tbe advantage taken of the general unsettling Oi values to advance prices to a degree limited only by public eudurau je. We are pleased with Mr." WelU' aamisfion that the currency can be cured iar more eaily than it cau be endured. It he complains too loudly of our taxes, we must refer him to the currency. If he com plains of the currency, we must refer Mm to Wa?hineton. But we heartily agree with him and Webster, that "ot all the contrivances for cheating the laboring classes of mankind, noue ha been touDd more effectual tbau thai which deludes them with an irredeemable paper cur rency." Apply tuU solvent truth to Mr. Wells' sciuples concerning taxation, and it will be plain that, however well or ill be the applica tion of certain features of tax and tariff, oar duty is to resume. with Hlnrient collection, we should now bo deriving ci'hty millions of dollars from the tax on diattlled liuuors. A it 1, wo receive but a in traction more than a quarter ol that amount. The Commissioner recommends that Supervisors of Revenue be appointed over the In spectors, ana mar vug mi uc iwuvu w wu uvr TIIE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. P1IILADEL?IIIA MONDAY, lar for the sake of a more easy collection of a laracr revenue. It I notorious that the whisky tax is greatly evaded; but the fault Is perhaps as much In tbe pari bun character ot appointments aud removal of subordinate revenue agents as in anything else. Tho cotton tax ol three cents per pound seems to the Commissioner quite sufficient, and he savs: "Tbe tax may be col lected for one or two jears. or until the aggre gate crop ol the world shall yield a surplus of cotton, with less Injury to the pr iductioa of cotton in the Untied States than the collection ot an equal amount of icvcnne would cause if imposed upon other branches ot Industry." There appears to be no reason in the Commis sioners wind for an extensive change ot the tariff, bom a revenue point of view. Thli, he thinks, as we do, must be sought for In the necessities of our iudutriul interests; but Mr. Wells Is far from appreciating fully the weight ot the arguments tor protection. Ifthepeple are to be bcucUtcd by reductions in ceriain articles of consumption wherein there cm be no rivalry, the least that can be denaoded I? that such a chau r shall enure to protect our home interests. Tar us less for necessities, tf Mr. Wells will; but give us more tariff for pro tection. Lighten the load of our Internal taxes, but be sure that our Internal interests are fostered, multiplied, and enriched by a wise and timely defense against foreign free trade. In other words, Insure us something like freo trade among ourselves, and save us from being the slaves of middlemen aud importers, and Irom living in the employ and at the will ot foreign commerce. To improve our cur rency we want protection. If Mr. Wells believes that some oi our tariff rates sweep the mer chants' protils into the pockets of the Govern ment, and oiler a premium to the foreign pro ducer, ho knows that others have unquestion ably belied to build up our domestic manul'tc ture. However tmnb he complains, he cannot heli drawing an inference lavoi able to protec tion ; and so do we. Here it is remarkable that Mr. Wells notes the great activity ot businesi, industrial and specu lative; the large increase of mining and uisnu lactuiing establishments, including tho3e lor cotton and iron; our great progress in labor saving invention and machineiy; the continued Increase of foreign Imniinrailon and demand for skilled labor. But he dwells with great seriousness on the contrary averments, that nr ces are oppressive and exceed the wages of labor; that labor, especially skilled labor, Is scarce: that more manufactures are wanted; and that there has been a decrease of production and consumption, aud a partial suspension of our national development. In Massachusetts. lor instance, a smaller number of hands are employed than in tho year 1865; but he does not tell us that a greater number are employed elsewhere and In other Industries, aud pays, It wouiii eeeui, ln.iinerenr attention to tm unset tlements and resettlements effected by the war. Massachusetts, let it be observed, does not re ceive more immiirrants than other States, but it probably sends out more emigrants ot a valu able class. The Hrst rtu-l ol Mr. Wells' state ment may be employed to meet the other: but on this point we have not timo to dwell. Suilice it tiiat, if the condition of our currency has occasioned the ware ty of labor, while immi gration is preaier thau in anv former year, there is eveiy reason why we should resume. It is plain from Mr. Wells' showing that our manufactories have increased, and that new in dustries have called new hands to work. The prospect is not. therefore, so hopeless thtt a high tariff, a wise riistribution of our taxes, and an early resumption would not dissipate the evils dreaded. Tbe Commissioner's general conclusion on the subject oi tariff, is that the duty on raw mate rials should be reduced within the minimum of the necessities ot the Treasury. The duty on Canadian lumber mlpht be reduced, he thinks, with great benefit to the country, since its only effict has been to increase tbe price of lumber. On the great woollen interest, he holds that tbe wool grower wiU be best benetiied by favoring the manufacturer; and orter showing to his own satisfaction that the piesent depression in the wool trade is owing in great measure to cotton, favors a reducion ol the duties on combing wool. This will be asrieeuble to the manu facturer. Finally, he favors such a reduction on raw materials as the revenue can bear. On these points much remains to be said. For the present, we dismiss the Commissioner's report with the comment that it 1s elaborate, if not satisfactory, and supplies great store ot facts, if not alwavs of sound argument. Congress and the Supreme Court The Oreat Issue for the Next Presidency. From the Herald. The great revolution decreed by the sovereign j people ol the United States in suppression of i the late so-called Southern Confederacy by force of arms is not yet accompl sued. To make it good, to fix it in the Bupreme law oi the land and In the administration ol our political aflnirs, natioual and local, much yet remains to be done. AgalnBt the consummation of this work recents events have disclosed a formidable barrier in the Supreme Court at Washington, as it now stands, a relic of the past, still adher ng to those old pernicious notions of national subordination to State rights aud the divinity of slavery which culminated in the Dred Scott decision, and went down to the bottom of tbe : sea with all the other wrecks of the Rebellion. From present indications, theretore, the con t'olling issue for the Lext Presidency will be between this relic of tho past, tbis barrier to any further progress and its supporters, on the one side, and Congress, the Union army and navy, and the great Union party of the war on the other side. The result will assuredly be as decisive in lavor ol Congressional reconstruc tion as the late contest has been before the people between Congress and the President; but this otLer tight must be made to clear the track. Between Congress and the Supreme Court, as between Congress and the President, the issue will have to be settled by the sovereign people. Tbe Supreme Couit has resumed its interpre tations of the Constitution where they were left oil under Taney and Buchanan. It goes behind the var, and gives us the Constitution and State rights as tuej were preached by Jefferson under the Inspirations ot the Jacobin French republic, astliey were agitated by Calhoun to the verge of tbe overt act of treason, and as they were carried into practice by halt a million of his armed disciples in their fate bloody conspiracy against the Union. On the other band, Con- f ress has assumed to net upon the theory that he Constitution as expounded by Judge Taney is no longer the Constitution ol the United States, and t bat State rights,a preached by Calhoun and put into practice by Jeff. Davis, have beon swept away with the Rebellion, khall Ihe opinions of a baie majority of these nine old superannuated petti'oggers ol tbe supreme Court, lelt to the country as the legacy of the old defjnut South ern slaveholding oligarchy, prevail, or shall these old marplots make way tor the will of the sovereign people and the national Constitution as expounded by Washington and Hamilton, and as extablished by a millionof Union bayonets in a tour years' civil war? This i tbe great ques tion for 1868. In this contest we take our position by the side of Congress the law-making; power, the sovereign controlling department ol tne national Govrrnment, upon which all other departments are dependent.iand to which they are all sub ordinate, president, supreme judires, every officer of thejtiovernaient of every department, may be impeached and removed by Congress; but Congress ittelt cannot bi touched except by the sovereign people. It is cot improbable, however, that, presuming too far upon their judicial i'uuctious, the old Bourbous and thoroughly Calhounized Judees of ths present tSnpreuie Court may thrust tnemselves between Conprets and the pending Constitutional amend ment. In tact, they have done so to some extent already in their late Milli&an decision. What then? Why theut what with the old wag song of the Constitution aud State rights, resumed by Northern Copperheads, and what with the clamor ot Wendell .Phillip and the Northern nigger worshippers running to the opposite extiemes, inoludii g a hue and cry for tbe Pre sident's Impeachment, it is manifest tnat there must be a dead lock in this Southern work of , . . ;. . . ; t-I reconstruction, which will necessarily have to be removed by the Mvrroign people Id the elec tion ot Oir next President. How will parlies stand in this conflict! Sub stantially as they tood In the late September, October, and November electiona. The Union party ol the war, the parly ot Congress, and of Southern reconstruct! n will carry the country. Nr S'de Issues in all tho mighty North will bo p l muted to sh ike tho solid front or tne sove reipn people. Congress and the war will still be Histalned by tbem, and the President elected In 1818, cordially co-operating with Congress in lMi9, will speedily brush away the old State HeIiU obstructions of the Supreme Court. Thus, with the Court and the Executive in perfect harmony with Coneress, the work of reconstruc tion will rapidly be made complete, consistent with the new dispensation, and solid and endur ing. Accordingly, let Congress so shape its course as to make the great issue for tho next Trei-idencv a reconstruction ot the Supreme Cot rt,aD4l any respectable reconstruction ticket will sweep the field. We are as well convinced ol this as that the great Union party ot the yvar is fixed, and will bland inflexible in its resolution to prove to the world that its war for the Union has not been a failure. OBITUARY. AublnXouls Iledouln de Pons L,udore. The French papers announce the recent death of tnis eccentric chat actor. He was the son of one ol the judces of the tribunal of tho Marshals ol France, and wus the last of the family of the great Cobett. He wa a linguist, archiuologt't. and Roographer, and assisted Maltoin compiling his "Annales des Voyages." being ot a m t unique cast ol countenance, and wearlua a most picturesque costume, he became an obiect of public curiosity. Hiy attire consisted of a gica'-eoatof coarse yellow cloth, with two rows of tho large bu'.tons of tbe old Pompiers of tbe Rational Guard; a huge old-fasli n.ned striped waistcoat, tfhieh concealed In the depths o its pocket a wafch and trinkets: trowsers of coarse grey cloth, open at the sides and butioned near tbe ankle; blue stockings, shoes much woru, which hid never known polish: on h s bead a cap of faded velvet, the peak always at the side; his long hair tell over his shoulders in thick shining ringlets, and in his hand he carried a crooked walkiuc stick, of the time of the first republic. Notwithstand ing this eccentr city, however, he was a man of fine talent, and, had he directed his genius pro perly, would have become famous. Baronesa Bluet de Marcognet. The Journu duLoiret notices the recent death ot this lady. She was the dauchtcr of Captain Lo Morimer, who, when djintr from a wound on the bat'.le-heid, gave dia daughter over to the charge of Murcogaet, then his t-upcrior officer. Hetookchaige of the child, and bad her pro perly educau d. On her attaining her t euueth jearhe married her, and from thai time she served us an aul-do-cimp on his staff, wearing tht diess of an officer, and sharinor all the dan gers of yiar. At the battle ol Waterloo an officer of ordnance attempted to drive hift watrons over to tbe Bri(i.-h, under the pretext that he was obeying an order of the General. Tbe Baronev happened to be in 0113 of the waeons. and jumpinc: into it. she levelled a p'stol at the trai tor, and threaten ne his hie, compelled htm to retrac e his steps. The Baroness de Marcognet survived ti e General lor several years. Catharine Stuart. Tills lady, the widow of Commander J.

The Fiench Empress and the Prince Impe rial, on tbe morning ol their leaving Compiegne, boih via vsits uucxpecedly, her Majesty to tho Infant School, and the jbung Prince, to the College. The En press arrived at hall-past 10, accompanied by a lady ot honor oulv, and a ter going tnrough the establishment aud making teveral inquiries, expre.-sed her satisfaction ut w bat she taw. About the same hour the Prince, accompanied by M. Monnier, his tutor, aud M. Bachon, his equerry, arrived at the College, and afler passing before the pupils dra vn up to re ceive him, obtained lor them a day and a hall's holiduy, the latter at once, and the former to be added to the vacation ot the Jour de l'An. It h unnecessary to add that the young Prince was loudly cheered on withdrawing. Oilicial reports show the extent of Ihe recent Inundations in France. The number of depart ments whkh suffered more or lees from the recent visitation is thirty-one. Not fewer thau 1702 communes were in vaded by the floods, and the total loss is estimated at 43,753,234 Iraucs. The Commission proposes to distribute at once 3,777,917 francs.
